The place for fixies and other rides without gears
My first thought was if it wasn't for the super spindly forks that could be virtually new. Amazing stuff for late 80s.
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.

The colour is absolutely MENTAL. Blurs in every photo in natural light! Need a better camera/place to take photos.
Anyway, just took it for a 30k maiden voyage. She loves it. Thanks Gypsy for organising frameset / cranks / rims. More than one smile around the house tonight!
Yeah.. Due to a neck injury riding for more than an hour causes too much pain. So rather than give up cycling entirely I use the fixie for short rides.
It rides bloody awesome! So much so i'm tempted to order another frame set and build one up identical for me in another fluro colour ha ha! Don't really need another bike without gears though .... except maybe an SS CX... hmmmmmmmmm
Really nice looking scoot.... love it.
OI onya bike!!!
